about, you talked about paul ryan, this medicare argument, you know, do you think that seniors believe that this is only going to affect people under the age of 55 or do they not trust politicians enough to think they can't keep their hands off the medicare. >> i honestly don't know how to get my arms around how the seniors react. they understand that paul ryan is up to no good when it comes to his medicare proposal. they look at him you look at the response at aarp, the way the proposal is at the end of the day has been received negatively by all folks even people who say we need to do something with the medicare, don't think it works. >> thank you, eliot spitzer who you can see on viewpoint at 8:00 p.m. you can watch him tonight covering all the issues for the debate. thank you. >> thanks for having me on. >> you can call 866-55-press. we're taking more of your calls. i'm jamaal simmons. thank you for putting up with me this morning. >> radio meets television, the bill press show, now on current tv. ♪ perspective. >>i'm a slutty bob hope. the troops love me. >>only on current tv. y

. this is a guy who voted for -- has voted for medicare part d and it was a good thing to do but not in the way it was done. they're not going to -- they're going to come out and say yeah, we need of need these workers especially ryan and walker. walker got screwed on that call the other night. >> bill: sorry i have to run along. we're out of time here but i'm afraid you're right. i would hope, i would hope that scott walker and paul ryan would learn the big lesson here. that this -- what we see and hear about replacements not being able to do the work doesn't just apply to professional refs. but you know, that's probably a snowball's chance in hell that they would learn that. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show."

addled so they vote republican. even among seniors florida where most people are seniors medicare and social security. a 51% to 47%. president obama is leading among seniors. it is among white men that's the only group supporting mitt romney. again, i can't figure it out. president obama did -- among all men, particularly by the way white men among all men in 2008, i checked this morning he beat john mccain by just one point. 49 to 48. but among white men in 2008, he lost by 16 points to john mccain. among white males so far in 2012 romney leads -- you heard some of the leads among other groups but among white males romney over obama 60% to 34%. a 26-point lead among white males. i don't get it. i guess the question is what's wrong with white males. other question is can white males alone save mitt romney? i don't think so. i would love your take on this. help us figure it out. 1-800-steph-12. look what is it about white men? is it they're afraid of losing their job? they're afraid of losing their homes?
